Dolan On Notre Dame Decision: "They made a big mistake"

Archbishop Timothy Dolan appeared on today's "Sunday Insight" with Charlie Sykes, and was asked if the University of Notre Dame made a mistake by inviting President Barack Obama to speak at the school's graduation ceremony.

Dolan responded: "They did, and I say that as one who loves and respects Notre Dame. They made a big mistake. There's a lot of things that President Obama does that we can find ourselves allied with and working with him on, and we have profound respect for him and pray with him and for him. But in an issue that is very close to the heart of Catholic world view, namely, the protection of innocent life in the womb, he has unfortunately taken a position very much at odds with the Church."

Fr. Jenkins must be getting a HUGE payoff for NObama to go to Notre Dame, otherwise, why is he resisting so many superiors and alumni on this issue, not to mention all the pro-life Catholics and members of other denominations.
